I'm now a Captain in the Kentucky Department of Corrections. Drill Sgt. hunter and I had the 1st platoon, I think Mayberry and Costello had 2d and Morales and duran had 3d. Man that was a long time ago it seems, but at times just like yesterday.
I went from Ft.Knox to 2ACR Regt. Hqs. Then Ft. Polk, U.S. Army Recruiting command in California, then back to Ft. Knox. I retired a SFC in Sept. of 99. I ran into Costello at Ft. Knox about 10-12 years ago and have not seen him after that. I attended ANCOC with a few of the Drills from B/5C/1. Great to hear from you,I hope all is well?
